A cache of [Kenneth] Siegel’s photographs from the ’70s, which included these images of the the “S.N.L.” cast and the others taken in Times Square, were given to the New-York Historical Society in 2008. Tom Schiller, who produced short films and wrote for “S.N.L.,” says that after each week’s show was finished, everyone headed downtown to One Fifth Avenue (now Otto) for an afterparty — not, usually, to Greek joints. “It’s rare to see them all lined up like that,” Schiller says. “It’s weird and wonderful.” (source)

New York in the 1970s, filmed in Super 8 by Irving Schneider

This film of New York City streets, parks, and people was made in the early 1970s by amateur filmmaker Irving Schneider. Includes scenes of Brooklyn Heights, Washington Square and Greenwich Village, the Garment District, Times Square and 42nd Street, and Central Park. Music by John Coltrane.

There are some minor technical glitches caused by the age of the film and the transfer from Super 8 to digital video.

Music: My Favorite Things Part 1 by John Coltrane
